School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-5 Sabin's Arctic and Antarctic Regions could provide an introduction to the subject, but the lack of an index or contents page renders the book useless for student research. Christopher Green's Polar Lands (Bodley Head, 1984), which covers many of the same concepts, is a more useful choice for school or public libraries. Henry Pluckrose's Arctic Lands (Watts, 1982), which concentrates on the plant and animal life of the polar region, is also recommended. Stone's Antarctica and The Arctic are examples of excellent nonfiction for younger readers. Large print, beautiful photographs, chapter headings, a word list and an index all help to make these additions to the series valuable for the beginning researchers as well as for intermediate children with reading difficulties. Another good source on Antarctica at the same reading level is Keith Lye's Take a Trip to Antarctica (Watts, 1984). Eunice Weech, M.L. King Elementary School, Urbana, Ill.
